There is always one thing or another that people seem to find in order to call people names while being in school. While growing up everyone always made fun of how small my feet are and how I would wear small shoes. At first, I would get annoyed and angry about it; however, the more I started appreciating myself and seeing how lucky I am to even walk no matter what my shoe size is, the more confident I got. This helped me ignore what people said to me about my feet and stopped bothering me. The more I ignored people’s comments the less they made fun of me.
It’s tough being 13 and feeling like the weight of your future is on your shoulders. You’re only a freshman and you’re asked to decide a career, then focus on college or a trade, all with a single test as reference point. Here’s the thing: one test cant adequately reflect all that you are. You might be a nurturer, but also love excitement. You might be analytical and also creative. There’s too much of who you are to summed up in a single test and you don’t even know all that you are and could be at only 13-years-old.
